Alba Manual 2-Way HDMI Selector. 3.2 5 13 14
basic hdmi switch Purchased this switch with an ethernet hdmi cable. Works well with my amazon fire stick. 31 May 2015
Awful product! I cannot understand why Argos stocks this product. The one I bought didn't work unless the button was pressed in, when released it lost picture. Truly hopeless and my experience mirrors that of other customers. 14 October 2014
dissapointed i brought this itemm thinking it would be very good but sometimes it switches my ps4 off ad on 09 September 2014
Would recommend buying a better quality product Purchased the HDMI Selector but would not change over to other channels, returned as faulty. 06 September 2014
Rubbish item This product is rubbish. It doesn't even come with a HDMI Cable. Don't buy unless you want to spend more money on getting a cable as well. 19 August 2014

how do you switch?

10 months ago
the picture and description does not explain how you switch between the HDMI's... is their a button/switch on the back or side and do you need to pull it out of the tv cabinet every time you need to switch between them? or is their a remote to switch? it would be good if you could show more pics?

Answer: 
Hi StevieB,

Thank you for your question.

I can confirm that two hdmi compatible units can be connected to this splitter which can then be connected to your monitor, however both units cannot be used at the same time.

Thank you for using Q&A.

Answer: 
If you unplug the blu-rray from the tv and connect the selector instead, then plug both the xbox and blu-ray into the selector, you should be able to access either/or at the flick of a switch.
